Hello Maria

Truth is not determined by majority vote. 

 
     ~Doug Gwyn
 

And Mary said,

I’m bursting with God-news;
    I’m dancing the song of my Savior God.
God took one good look at me, and look what happened—
    I’m the most fortunate woman on earth!
What God has done for me will never be forgotten,
    the God whose very name is holy, set apart from all others.
His mercy flows in wave after wave
    on those who are in awe before him.
He bared his arm and showed his strength,
    scattered the bluffing braggarts.
He knocked tyrants off their high horses,
    pulled victims out of the mud.
The starving poor sat down to a banquet;
    the callous rich were left out in the cold.
He embraced his chosen child, Israel;
    he remembered and piled on the mercies, piled them high.
It’s exactly what he promised,
    beginning with Abraham and right up to now.

Luke 1: 46-55

Hello Maria

Unmarried, pregnant, encountered

by the Holy Spirit, she was able

to stand in that place, in her here

and now and rejoice close to dance.

She praised God.

The horizon not crystal clear, lit

by hope, by recalling promises

much older than time.

Lord, help me to praise, here and now,

help me to see what you need me to see,

give me the grace to take the next blind step.

Because of Him,

Linda
